I’m a writer, editor, educator, and witch1 living in Tiohtià:ke/Mooniyang (colon-ly known as Montréal). Er. Colonially. You know what I mean.

My first chapbook of poetry, this dying body, will be released in July 2022 with Rahila’s Ghost Press.

My other writing has been published in Plenitude MagazineThis Side of WestNonBinary Review, Briarpatch Magazine, and a few other places. I have a short story in Nameless Woman: An Anthology of Fiction by Trans Women of Color, and I wrote a chapter of Turn This World Inside Out: The Emergence of Nurturance Culture with Nora Samaran. I also edit with Room magazine and The Malahat Review, and have mentored trans, non-binary, and Two-Spirit youth through the Gender Generations Project.
